It is formed by the command "Ninpuu Combine" (忍風合体 Ninpū Gattai). It was destroyed in the final episode in a kamikaze attack from the Evil Will that had taken the form of the Jakanja leader Boss Tau Zant, only to be rebuilt by Oboro Hinata and stolen by Fourth Spear, Wendinu and First Spear, Furabiijo in the Abaranger vs. Hurricaneger special. Unfortunately, it was beaten by Bakuryuu Gattai KillerOh, separating into its three components.
Senpuujin's attacks with the Dolphin Tornado (ドルフィントルネード Dorufin Torunēdo) energy wave from its right arm and the Mane Hurricane (タテガミハリケーン Tategami Harikēn) blizzard blast from its left shoulder, both of which are activated by inserting Hurrican Lion's tail as a ripcord and it can fire a smokescreen through it's 'mouth' distracting enemies. It can also fire Hurricane Dolphin's laser canons as a close range attack. By inserting Shinobi medals into slots on their consoles, the Hurricangers can summon Karakuri Balls from the chamber within Senpuujin's chest which open to deploy any of several weapons it can use to finish off giant opponents.
Although it's access to Karakuri Balls gives it a large variety of finishing moves, the most commonly used one is the Copy Illusion Slash where it summons the Sword Slasher and then splits into three copies of itself, one for each Hurricaneger. They would then charge up the blade tip with yellow energy and slash at the target, in order of a horizontal, upwards vertical, and downward vertical slash. The triple slash would usually succeeded in explosively destroying its foes (excepting Copy Ninja Kurrisotsubo, who disapparated into energy particles upon being fatally struck by the assault).
Appearances: Hurricaneger Episodes 2-16, 18-30, 32-38, 40-47, 50-51.
When GokaiOh and Gosei Great faced the Black Cross Colossus, the mecha of the first 33 Super Sentai, including Senpuujin which possibly manifested from a toy version like DaiDenzin and the Variblune, appeared to back them up. When the Black Cross Colossus summoned several giant villains to oppose them, Senpuujin fought alongside ShinkenOh and Muteki Shogun to destroy Buredoran of Chimatsuri. After all the giant villains were destroyed, all 35 mecha weakened Black Cross Colossus with a combined attack before GokaiOh combined with the Variblune to become Goren GokaiOh which destroyed the Black Cross Colossus with the Gokai Hurricane: Cassiopeia finisher. With the battle won, the 33 past Super Sentai mecha vanished.
Zyuohger vs. Ninninger
Representing Hurricaneger, Tenrai Senpuujin appeared among manifestations of the first 38 Super Sentai's mecha that granted Wild Tousai Shuriken King the power to perform the Zyuoh Ninnin Super Sentai Burst which destroyed the titanic Gillmarda.

Its attack is the Karakuri Ninpou: Lion Dance (カラクリ忍法・連獅子 Karakuri Ninpō: Ren Jishi) , a whirlwind blast from its rotating mane that immobilizes the opponent before Hurricane Lion uses its rear thrusters to launch itself down the wind tunnel to tackle them. Forms the legs, torso, and left arm of Karakuri Giant Senpuujin (the latter also forming Karakuri Giant Gourai Senpuujin's chest).

- "Senpuujin, Hurry up!"
- ―Transformation Command[src]
With the command "Senpuujin, hurry up!", Senpuujin is able to change into a slimmer and faster form called Senpuujin Hurrier (旋風神ハリアー Senpūjin Hariā) that lasts for 60 seconds before the Hurricanegers have to revert it back to avoid internal damage. While in this form, Senpuujin Hurrier has the two large Double Hurrier Swords (ダブルハリアーソード Daburu Hariā Sōdo) as weapons and can fire a yellow energy beam through it's chest.
Senpuujin Hurrier's finisher attack is the Wheel Crash where it would produce it's Hurrier Swords and then fly upwards using jet thrusters in it's feet. It would generate a large ramp from said feet and then grow the wrist blades, making them fuse together into a wheel. It would then join onto the platform, going down the ramp at high speed which would charge it up with yellow energy before slamming into and ploughing through the monster. It can also do the Hurrier Bullet Slash where it did a flying slash attack with Gouraijins help. Oddly, in the episode "The Chief and the Bath" , it did more than that and caught up Poison Flower Ninja Hanasakkadoushi in it's sphere and sent him flying.
The Karakuri Balls that Senpuujin uses are:
- 01: Sword Slasher
- 02: Goat Crusher
- 03: Tortoise Hammer
- 05: Gatling Leo
- 06: Squid Attacker
- 07: FūraiHead
- 09: Karakuri Mantle
- 13: Karakuri Stamp
- 14: Pitatto Hitode
- 16: TriKanmuri
The Hurricangers also used both of the Legendary Karakuri Balls on two separate occasions. The first time is where they used the Raging Arrow, where it also caused them to lose control of Senpuujin which led Sandaru to realize the importance to obtaining the Grieving Bow Medal and it also caused for Gozen to reveal herself. The second time is they are able to use them to nullify the wormhole to the Evil Force that Tau Zanto created.
